looking to spring on a new pair of twin-tip mid fats, and slapping some AT bindings for my first true backcountry set-up... I'll be skiing in-bounds a majority of the time, but will be seeking the OB more and more... I'm caught between the BD Havocs and Line Prophets, seeing pros and cons for each... Anyone have some advice for me making my selection?

What would James Bond do (WWJBD)? He would buy this watch! At least that how i feel when i wear it. I have the all black, and it is freakin slick. I get tons of compliments, all the time, my friends always ask if they can wear it out, of course i say no... If this might annoy you, don't buy it. And if you do buy the banks, don't buy the all black, i don't want a bunch of posers out there sporting my watch! lol.

Has anyone mounted these to mid-fat skis? I'm considering Line Prophet 100's as my 1 ski quiver, and am thinking about putting alpine touring bindings on to rip around the local resort's OB (mainly to get first bowl tracks and piss off my boarder friends. (The skis are 100 mm wide) . Would anyone recommend these, or another? Another question, do these take the abuse of all-mountain riding on the resort in hard snow conditions?Actually, forget the last q... Why would you endure bad snow conditions if you had these??? Am I right?

Binding Choice???Ok, so I've pretty much convinced myself that the Prophet 100s are the ski for me ( I based this decision on graphics alone) but now need to select the binding to pair with it. I'm an aggressive skier, looking for something that will cushion landings and hold 205 lbs off a 15 ft drop. out of the PX 12 jib, marker Griffon, or Salomon STH 14, or other in that price range, what binding would work well in this combo?

One Ski Quiver??? I'm skiing out west looking into several skis, including these Prophets, the Line Blends, and something like the older mojo 90's. I'm about 210, ski aggressively, and look more for powder cornices, cliffs, and kickers more than park or groomers. However, I do occasionally cruise park runs when conditions elsewhere are not so prime. I started throwing spins, so would like to find something that is not too compromising for that task, but also has the nimbleness for tree runs, good flotation in pow, and solid stability for landings. What ski, stiffness, and width (including others not mentioned) is right for me?

The mojo 94 is a fatter version of the old mojo 90 which was heads fat park/b.c. jib ski but was stiff enough to rip on the groomers. The prophets are big mountain charging skis that float well in powder and still able to dabble in the park now and then, Not really comparible IMO, the mid 90mm waisted ski is null@void, its better to just move up to a 100mm ski and gain the extra stability and float and crud busting ability without losing any groomer performance. Not to mention the overly high price of head skis.
